Use the Remove-ManagedFolder cmdlet to delete managed folders from the Active Directory directory service.

Remove-ManagedFolder -Identity <ELCFolderIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Remove-ManagedFolder cmdlet accepts a Managed Folder object or an identity string as pipelined input.

To run the Remove-ManagedFolder cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the name, distinguished name, or GUID of the managed folder.




The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.




To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command.




The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.

This command does not return a value.
